together enough votes, leaders of both parties get together enough votes to pass this in the house. house democrat -- still operating under the 112th congress, the last congress. the new one won't be sworn in until later this week. republicans have a healthy majority, even if there is significant number of democrats who vote for this, you know, they're going to need many republicans to cross over. and so what they're doing now with the democrats is that joe biden's trying to convince his own members not to break off because there are a lot of liberals who simply don't like this either and say they don't like the idea, for example, of keeping tax cuts in place for americans and households making up $450,000. they think that's simply too high. >> we'll be watching closely. obviously going to come back to you as the developments warrant. a lot is taking place behind the scenes. of course in front of the cameras as well as they play out their own version trying to come up with something to avert the fiscal cliff. the senate did make a decision, came up with a plan but of course the house has

of -- and house republicans have to band together because house democrats are not going to support those spending cuts and it is true. congress had a long time to deal with this, even since the election they had two months, waited until the last second. boehner couldn't pass the so-called plan b bill. he lost a lot of leverage on this. this is very tricky for john boehner and his lieutenant. they have a relatively narrow house majority, polls show that the fiscal cliff blame would be mostly on them, not the president. not on democrats. that might change. but this is a very risky move if we go well into january with this unresolved. >> and you got to wonder if the house republicans are kicking themselves for not passing the plan b, which allowed for tax rates on people making a million or more since the figure that passed was significantly less at 400,000. bob cusack, thank you. we appreciate you being with us. >> thanks, deb. >>> well, developing this hour in alaska, on a shallow and rocky shore line near the uninhabited kodiak island, a huge oil rig has run aground. it has run aground. the coast
